I spotted this Kentucky Fried Chicken and asked to eat here. I was glad Hans and Steve agreed. From our table we could see Mt. Fuji while listening to Josh Groben singing I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas. I said, "It doesn't get any better than this!"
I bought a couple of Christmas gifts here.
After eating, we drove to a shrine at the foot of Mt. Fuji. The entrance of the shrine is really pretty, cement lanterns lining the way. The large trees were towering over the shrine. I thought they might be sequoias, but learned later they are cedar.
I like standing by this tree because it makes me feel thin!
These large rope ties were were really interesting.
